Helen Grant has a passion for the Gothic and for ghost stories. Joyce Carol Oates has described her as "a brilliant chronicler of the uncanny as only those who dwell in places of dripping, graylit beauty can be." A lifelong fan of the ghost story writer M.R.James, she has spoken at two M.R.James conferences and appeared at the Dublin Ghost Story Festival. She lives in Perthshire with her family, and when not writing, she likes to explore abandoned country houses and swim in freezing lochs. Helen's novel Ghost was published by Fledgling Press in 2018. Praise for Ghost: "Highly propulsive, incredibly seductive... I loved it." C.J.Skuse, author of Sweetpea. "A superb book, beautifully written and with a tense and gripping storyline that draws you in and then keeps you engaged to the very end." Undiscovered Scotland. Her latest novel Too Near The Dead was published in July 2021. "It’s menacing, but quietly so. And that sense of unease didn’t leave me." The Bookwitch. "It’s absolutely no secret that I’m a massive fan of ghost stories but take a ghost story and make it Scottish and that’s *chef’s kiss* - especially when it’s as gorgeously written and evocative as Too Near The Dead by Helen Grant." Scot Lit Daily.
